conduct rf the Court of Criminal Correc

Police Courts, on appeal, go to the Court
of Criminal Correction, and nearly all of
the felony oharjes originate there. It is a
court of appeals from the police courts and
the Judge of that court sits as a commit
ting magistrate in felonies. It also has ex
clusive Jurisdiction of misdemeanors com
mitted aslnst the State law. The Imoort-

order Is beyond that of any other In our

tvonitntcs of the
l'OLlcn DUPAItTlinST.
I Wo have tpent considerable time looking
Into the wo: kings of the Police Department
and Its methods of procedure. We find that
the personnsl of the force is good and the
general appearance and executive capacity
of the men ilrserve favorable comment. The
business mathods pursued by the depart
ment in the purchase of supplies, however,
we find in many instances is subject to
much criticism In not securing competitive
prices or information as to the market value
of goods. The new police manual, wo are
told, provides for a number of chances in
this regard, which will greatly benefit the
department. When its provisions are put In
operation, cs we are promised will soon be
dene, we hope for much Improvement over
present conditions.
We think it Is but Justice to say that we
found a willingness on the part of heads of
departments to rully co-operate with this
Jury and to remedy defects to which their
attention was directed.
All the raambers of the present force, re
gardless of party, belong to one political
association and pay assessments to It.
While thr may be no direct orders to this
effect yet the implied suggestions bring
about that result, and tho tendency Is to
engender in the minds of the officers the
idea that they must serve their psrty be
fore1 they serve the public. Members of the
force should be left free to exercise their
political rights and be made to understand
that the Interests of the party must be
subservient to the Interests of tie public.
INQUIRY IXTO CITY
LIGHTING COSTUACTS.
In the course of our Investigations we dis
covered that the lighting contract two years
ago was let to the Kern Incandescent Light
Company, which company gave a bond in
the sum of S200.W0. with a surety company
for the faithful performance of Its contract.
This bond was soon afterwards forfeited
by reason cf the failure of the company to
comply with its agreement, whereby the
city was compelled to relet the contract at
on Increase, during the term nf tt in
fract, of some half million dollars. The at
tention of the city officials has been called
to this, and we promised that In due time

KECOMMEXDATIOITS AS TO
CITY AUDITOR'S OFFICE;
We suggest and recommend that the
City Auditor not only audit the bills as
now presented to his office for payment,
but also the books and records of every
department of the city in which the hand
ling of public money enters, and that a
sufficient provision be made by the proper
authority for this purpose.
HESPOXSIDILITT OF HEADS
I OF DCPAHT3IEST9.
We have examined at some length Into
the methods of purchasing supplies in
vogue in several of the departments, and
End them in many Instances to be devoid of
the most ordinary principles of economy.
Large quantities of supplies of various
Kinds are not only ordered without bids
being taken, but without even the formal
ity of asking for a price. In some depart
ments certain houses ara designated by
chiefs of departments, to whom orders are
to be sent, while in other departments
thousands of dollars' worth of open orders
are placed with email or comparatively
unknown houses, or with these known to
be fictitious and having no legal existence.
The heads of departments may not b
beneflted by these methods, olthouth It is
Impossible for the Jury to reconcile the
same wua me aemanus ox ordinary busi
ness care, and we are forced to conclude
that they are either willfully conniving, or
are incompetent and unworthy to be
trusted with such Interests.
The many assignation houses run under
the guise of hotels whereby the Innocent
are deluded and betrayed Is a subject for
serious consideration. While the total
eradication of places of disrepute cinnot
be hoped for, yet the practice of parading
under the sign of an honest avocation for
the DUmose at deceiving nhntilrt he mtnrnA
The law on this subject provides sufficient
penalties, but the requirements as to proof
are manifestly extremely hard to meet. We
recommend that all hotels be licensed by a
municipal law in the same manner that
saloons are now licensed under the State
law, and that provision be made for the
refusal of a license to any place of bad
repute, or the revocation of a license that
may have been previously granted. Wo
regard this as the only practical way in
which the problem can be solved. We trust
the city officials will give this careful
thought.

His Wife Says He Is Visiting in

At No. "332 California avenue, Mr. Beech's
residence, his wife stated that he was in
Chicago on a business trip and would not

St. Louis Sunday night, intending to be
gone a week. She has heard from him

YELLOW IN WORLD'S FAIR FLAG.
Washington Times Thinks It Mors
the Color Scheme.
Washington. Matit Commenting on the
colors of the rproposed flag for the World's
Fair, the .Washington Times says:
"The directors of the St. Louis Exposi
tion have been having a discussion over a
flag which shall combine the colors of the
United States, Spain and France., They
wanted to put in the red, white and blue
m. ,1.1. ..A.....K.. ..II... tr Q..l.. .... .Via
fleur-de-lls for France, but some of the dl-i
rectors naa a violent oojcction to tne yel
low. They said that If the people saw that
jellow streak In the flag tbey might take
it as an evidence of yellow fever and be
frightened. The Louisville Courier-Journal
thinks that this Is unjust and an unneces
sary boycotting of a beautiful color.
"It may be, but yellow Is a pecular kind
of color. In its history, its associations and
its elective offlnltles. It Is associated his
torically with Spain and China, and neither
th-s Spanish nor the Chinese have had any
natural affiliations with us. It has been the
signal for yellow fever for a good many
years, and that Is not a very pleasant idea
to be mixed up with.
"Yellow is not a decorative color except
In certain combinations, and too much of
It In a room Is unpleasant unless It Is the
dominating color, and even then It Has to
be treated carefully. There Is something
about It that Is trying. Contrast, for ex
ample, a room furnished entirely In red or
green, blue ar pink, Uh one furnished en
tirely in yenow. Tiie.e is something aoout
yellew which Is more suited to the tropics
than to this climate."

Chicago, May St. James A. Patten. Mayor
of Evanston, and a prominent Board of
Trade operator, to-day brought to a suc
cessful close the corner in May oats which
has dominated the oats market since early
last fall.
The profits credited to Mr. Patten are es
timated at tl.CCCOOO.
About the time prices in corn began to
mount skywards last year on account of the
crop shortage It was learned that some
one was taking In all the May oats ofTered
on the Chicago market and elsewhere.
Prices began to advance steadily from
around 37c
On the big flurry on the Chicago Board
last December May oats were pushed to
T?ic Since that time reaction's occurred,
and when delivery day came this month
many speculators thought the bottom had
fallen out of the corner.
It was said Mr. Patten had 10.000,00 bu. to
12.000.000 bu. of the May options. Everything
that was offered to him on deliveries he
took, and In turn sold practically all the
contract stock to shippers at good Inducements.
This left i.othlng for the shorts to ac
quire with which to settle and prices ac
cordingly were pushed up by Mr. Patten
personally in the pit to-day.
May oats closed yesterday at jc To
day prices Jumped about 6c and closed at
ITHic There was a little flurry of excitement
at the close, but the corner did cot affect
the other options.
